If we worship Shri Krishna as a Supreme Almighty Personality, we will feel fear, hesitation and distance. This will become a hindrance in establishing a close relationship with Him. Rasika Saints have emphasised devotion to Lord Krishna through intimate relationships such as we have in the material world. These relationships of the devotee and God are known as bhavas. There are five bhavas: shanta, dasya, sakhya, vatsalya and madhurya. All the aspects of Love, i.e. God as our King, Master, Friend, Child and Beloved have been established in order to make us feel closer to God.
